Courtney Reid ’96 wins Folger’s Coffee Jingle Contest

Gordon alumna Courtney Reid ’96, along with over 3,000 other musicians, recently competed in a jingle competition for Folger’s coffee. The difference between Reid and the thousands of other entries . . . she won.

Professional songwriter and former American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi helped select the winner and will soon provide a professional mentoring session with Reid in addition to her cash prize and upcoming appearance in the next Folger’s coffee advertising campaign.

As a student at Gordon, Reid studied art and performed on campus as a singer for a Gordon band, Scarlet Haven. Today she is a singer and guitar player in the band Maeve—a collaboration of three women artists: Reid, Rachel Taylor and Rollyn Zoubek.

Congratulations, Courtney!
